Social Work in a Digital Society Reviews

Social Work in a Digital Society is valuable addition to social work education. Its strengths lie in the clarity of the content presented and in the organization of the chapters... What is most commendable is the attention to social exclusion and marginalization that runs through the work. The underlying themes of social justice will endure as a dominant critical analysis.

-- Brian Rasmussen
